I would get a Corsair or Gskill CAS9 1866Mhz memory kit instead though as pricing is about the same. PSU: There have been some sales recently on the Corsair HX750, if there still are get that instead. Close to that same price, much better quality. Would also get an SSD for system drive. Samsung 840 Evo 250GB would do fine. Share sora a b 4 Gaming November 11, 2013 4:50:10 PM An i5 is enough unless you are doing some very heavy video editing. You could also go down to 8GB RAM since it would save some money, otherwise, this is a solid build! m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources FIRST BUILD, GAMING PC $1700 BUDGET!
